Named after Mr Robert Dickson Alison Frew (1858-1930), the president of the Queensland Lawn Tennis Association from 1910-1930, Frew Park was the home of tennis in Brisbane. The QLTA had first opened its doors in 1904 in Lang Parade. Frew acquired the land from Mr J Kilroe in 1915 and Frew Park was home to the Milton Tennis Centre (and courts—19 hard and 4 grass courts) from 1915 until 1999. The centre hosted eight Australian Open Tennis Championships, sixteen Davis Cup ties, with finals in 1958, 1962 and 1967, as well as being the venue to a number of concerts, ranging from Elton John to Deep Purple and The Rolling Stones.
